The Global Thin Wafer Market - Forecasts from 2018 to 2023: A $9.22 Billion Opportunity -


The "Thin
Wafer Market - Forecasts from 2018 to 2023"
report has been
added to's offering.

The thin wafer market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth
rate of 4.22% over the forecast period to reach a total market size of
US$9.220 billion by 2023, from a market size of US$7.195 billion in 2017.

Reduction in the size of various electronic devices and electrical
components is one of the major factors driving the demand for thin

Rising number of smartphone users across the globe is majorly boosting
the demand for these wafer type in order to minimize the thickness of
the devices being manufactured.

Expanding global semiconductor industry coupled with increasing
awareness regarding the technology will propel the growth of thin wafers
market in the coming years.

Growing IC (integrated circuit) industry and rising demand for portable
devices will further augment the demand for thin wafers.

However, inefficient maintenance and delay in supply of thin wafers due
to manufacturing defects will restrain the growth of global thin wafer
market during the forecast period.

By size, 300 mm thin wafer is experiencing a significant market growth
as it enables the manufacturing of a large number of devices in a single
batch, thereby impacting the global thin wafer market positively.

Geographically, China from the APAC region is anticipated to witness the
fastest growth of thin wafer market during the forecast period owing to
the spending on the wafer fabrication equipment. Factors such as growing
semiconductor industry, rapid industrialization, and high demand for
various consumer electronics, particularly smartphones and tablets will
lead to this regional market growth.
